Graphics cards prices will likely remain sky-high in the near term
One unified app, goodbye GeForce Experience
Something to look forward to: Nvidia is finally making long awaited, much needed changes to their graphics card software. Available now is a new beta application simply called the Nvidia App, which greatly improves the software experience for Nvidia GPU owners. While it doesn't contain all of its features just yet, the eventual goal is for the Nvidia App to replace the outdated Nvidia Control Panel and annoying GeForce Experience into a single unified application.
The goal is to lessen dependence on Nvidia hardware
For the return of our monthly GPU pricing updates, we took a short break to review the newcomers and see where everything settled. We're in store for a bumper episode as there's much to discuss.
Its the ninth fastest supercomputer in the world
No reason for concern... yet
Nvidia GeForce drivers have added support for Skull and Bones along with DLSS upscaling. Additional optimizations include Helldivers 2 and Suicide Squad.
"Chat with RTX" requires an RTX 30 or RTX 40 series GPU
Nvidia is now worth $1.7 trillion -- make that $1.82 trillion...
Jackpot baby! Artificial intelligence has proven incredibly fruitful for Nvidia and its shareholders over the past year, and could even help the chipmaker surpass Amazon in terms of total market capitalization. Closing at over $720 today, that's an increase of more than 20% year over year and nearly 50% since the beginning of 2024.
Nvidia's initial claims about GH200's performance hold up for the most part
In context: The booming AI sector has propelled Nvidia's financials to new heights, as its AI acceleration GPUs have become highly sought after. However, these general-purpose components are facing increasing competition, prompting the company to develop more efficient chips tailored for specific clients and tasks.

Path tracing brings a GeForce RTX 4080 to its knees
In context: For those unfamiliar with OCuLink, it is an optical interface developed over a decade ago, primarily for servers. However, it has recently gained attention for consumer uses, such as external GPUs. OCuLink offers higher bandwidth compared to Thunderbolt 4 – up to 64 Gbps versus 40 Gbps. This increased bandwidth opens up the possibility better eGPU performance compared to Thunderbolt.
